Today was my last yarn shopping of 2006.
As some of you cleverly guessed, my special guest was L-B, who came up for a quick visit.
Lucy was happy to see her.
“L-B, is there a gift in here for me?”
There was! A catnip mouse knitted from Handmaiden cashmere!
This cashmere was leftover from something gorgeous L-B made for me:
Fingerless mitts! Aren’t they wonderful? L-B made up the pattern (but she hasn’t written it out). I love the picot edges.
There was also gifting of yarn. Here’s what L-B brought me:
Clockwise from the top, that’s Fat Sheep bulky yarn (wool/mohair blend), Apple Pie sock yarn from Apple Laine (yum!) alpaca laceweight yarn in two colorways from Liisu Yarns, and more Fat Sheep. Woo hoo!
Today we went to Springwater Fiber Workshop and we both bought some stuff. My haul:
Clockwise from the top, that’s handpainted wool roving, The new Colinette sock yarn, some handpainted wool/tencel blend (Springwater label), and Cascade Ecological Wool.
So that’s it for yarn-buying for a while!
We had a great visit but it was much too short as usual. Still, we managed to pack lots of fun into a little bit of time. But Lucy now feels the need to nap.
I think I’ll join her!
